Get ready for a wave of news about all three current, former and future Barcelona goalkeepers. It'll be quick, I promise.

Let's start with the current, as Marc-André ter Stegen is reportedly set to sign a two-year extension of his contract with Barça, which will keep him at the club until 2021, according to Diario Sport. Ter Stegen will be the undisputed starter this season, and is stepping up his recovery from a knee injury in time for the weekend La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao.

Ter Stegen's future backup will indeed be Jasper Cillessen. The Dutch keeper will play his farewell match for Ajax on Wednesday's Champions League Playoff second leg against Rostov. After that, he will travel to Catalonia on Thursday for medicals and contract signing, and his official announcement is expected for Friday.

Another official announcement expected soon is that of (former) Barça keeper Claudio Bravo, who arrived in England on Tuesday afternoon for medicals and contract signing with Manchester City. Everything is now done, and the Citizens are likely to announce the transfer in the next 24 hours.

There you have it! All Barça goalkeeper news! Have a nice day!
